of america. what started in the south and on the plains is spreading to the industrial north. i just want us to remember here that unions brought to america the minimum age, the 8-hour workday, workplace safety rules, really, the middle class is what the unions of america gave to us. getting rid of unions will do one thing. it will exacerbate the concentration of power and money at the top and continue the hollowing out of america's middle class. that is why what is happening in michigan takes my breath away. joining me now on the phone from lansing, michigan is zac paul. zac is over progress michigan that uses new media to build grassroots support for progressive ideas. zac has been on the front lines for the past two days in protesting the legislation. zac, welcome inside the war room. >> thanks for having me governor. >> give us the lay of the land zac. what's happening right now? >> i just ran back across the street from the capitol. there were hundreds of protesters, as you said locked outside of the building today. the governor announced this legislati

the bully pulpit. if there is ever a humanitarian mission here in this congress or in america for a bully pulpit, it has to be this. we have to have emotion to overcome. just a slight example eliot i want to press on because i knew these individuals. the dixiecrats that president johnson had to work with, they were standing in the way. they were not going to pass or move on the 64 civil rights act or the '65 voting rights act which gave the opportunity for a young lady named barbara jordan to come the united states congress. but they were not going to move. if any of us -- why don't we send all of the congress to see lincoln. we need a lincolnesque moment. we need a johnson moment. we need to respond to the surge and that surge needs to overcome the procedural hastert posture and actually the speaker needs to be able to lead on this question. what will america do together to answer this question? i'm going to be getting statistics to show us that when we had the assault weapons ban it has been documented that the

. the rate of workplace deaths is 53% higher! that is bad news for america's workers. but it's great news for mcdonald's or walmart or any of the corporations who are paying full-time employees so little that they're categorized as poor. it is true that global businesses want places to easily pay less to workers without clout. they want to locate there. just like they want to pay people less than their own home countries. but their countries also may not have our minimum wage or our child labor laws or our safe fireproof factories. should america be in a race to the bottom? or should we leave the treatment of workers with, dare i say fairness and equity? but this is not about economics. this is about politics. think about the ramifications of these figures. union employees receive 28% more in wages and benefits than nonunion ones. for women the une advantage is 34%. for african-americans, it is 29%. for hispanics the union advantage is a whopping 50%! union members african-americans, women and hispanics. is it a

. it would be an appropriate fit. >> bill: no matter what they said in 2004, he is a genuine america war hero. i want to throw that in here. your article is interesting in "national journal." a secretary john kerry either state or defense would elevate climate issues. why do you say that? >> it's interesting, i don't know if a lot of people realize if a lot of americans realize that climate change is an issue that john kerry is extremely passionate about. as a foreign policy and national security issue. and i think a lot of democrats especially on the liberal end of the spectrum care about climate change and talk about it. john kerry has been working sort of, you know, behind the scenes on climate change issues for 20 years. he went to -- he attended the first big u.n. climate summit in rio de janeiro in 1992. this is an issue he works on with his wife, teresa heinz kerry. he was the author of a major senate climate change bill. he's gone to a lot of the u.n. summits and worked behind the scenes and in 2009 in copenhagen
